8:01 am
oscar-winning movie star, their dinner deep in the mexican jungle. what the drug lord told penn and the question this morning, could penn get in trouble, this as we learn more about el chapo's frantic efforts to escape capture. that trip through the sewer and now his fight against being brought to face justice here in america. hey, good morning. we are a nation of broken hearts and ripped up worthless powerball tickets. >> dan, i got to tell you, we weren't even close. >> we weren't close? >> like we got one number maybe on one ticket. across america the tickets were selling like hotcakes, so much so that in many states all-time sales records were just obliterated. >> and now with no winner in the saturday night drawing and the next drawing coming up on wednesday, it looks like we might be headed toward a new world record. the jackpot now expected to grow to $1.3 billion. that's a global first.
8:02 am
>> all right. who wants to be a billionaire, right? and check this out. most powerball signs don't even have the adequate amount of numbers to display the potential size of this new jackpot. abc's t.j. holmes kicking off our coverage this morning. hey, t.j. >> reporter: it's sunday so let's kick this thing off and sum it off with a little scripture. weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning. everybody sad they didn't win but you woke up to realize no one else won either. you lost your chance last night but you have a chance at 1.3 billion on wednesday night. the question had been, could we actually get to a billion? the question now, just how can it go? >> your winning powerball -- >> reporter: that powerball number 13 proving itself quite unlucky. despite all the odds, nobody won the record $949 million jackpot and people went through everything to get a chance. some stood in the rain for hours at this california store which has crowned at least four
8:03 am
millionaires in the past. >> i'm just going to take a trip around the world. >> reporter: some headed to this wisconsin gas station where last year just two weeks apart, two different million dollar winners bought their tickets. >> people who don't usually play are picking up tickets. >> reporter: and the staff of cover my meds in ohio even pooled together $1500 worth of tickets. >> we have the luckiest man in the u.s. on our side. >> reporter: trying to tap into an extremely lucky colleague. nick potts has hit it big in horse racing, vegas, and, yep, even on "the price is right." why not powerball? none of it mattered even though the probability of there being no winner last night was just 22%. >> it would be really, really unlikely if we didn't have a winner on wednesday. so 94% of the time somebody is going to win. >> reporter: that's right. we have crossed out of the millions territory. >> a million dollars isn't cool. you know what's cool. >> a billion dollars. >> reporter: the jackpot is increases to at least $1.3 billion for wednesday's drawing.
8:04 am
all right. so wednesday each time this thing rolls over what happens is that the chance of there being a winner goes up. but your chances still stay the same, 1 in 292 million. so just with more people playing, there are more chances that number combination is going to be out there, so your chances are not increasing. everybody, calm down. remember, folks, this was perfectly orchestrated by lottery officials, what we're seeing right now, the reason they changed the odds, took some of the powerballs out make it harder to win the jackpot, and that is what's happened. this is what they wanted to get everybody into it. the media is talking about it. and you get -- it's all about money. >> how high can this thing go? >> will they put the balls back in if it keeps flipping over? >> i don't know. if it gets ridiculous and out of control. >> it's ridiculous. >> now, at one point i know it's fun, at what point do we go, this isn't healthy. this isn't a good thing. imagine the person who wins $2 billion, what kind of target they'll be. >> our p.a. gave up her sushi lunch to play the powerball. she's still hungry. >> i'll tell you my chances by
8:05 am
the way. >> a lot of those questions you guys are talking about the change in the game. i spoke with the lottery chief, gary grief, just a couple of moments ago and he addressed a couple of those. gary, first and foremost, how surprised are you we don't have a winner? >> good morning, paula. i was very surprised last night to see the results. but i've got a question for you and your viewers first. who wants to be a billionaire? who wants to be a billionaire? >> and how about that? we're talking about a mind-boggling amount of money. what are you predicting the next jackpot, the powerball to be on wednesday for the next drawing? you're talking in the billions. 1.3 billion? >> that's correct. 1.3 billion. last night as everyone knows we had an advertised annuitized jackpot of $900 million. we had 25 players across the country who won a $1 million second prize. we had three other players who
8:06 am
won a $2 million second prize and now we've got powerball fever going again. this time for a $1.3 billion jackpot. never seen before. >> the powerball rules changed a couple of months ago. is that why it's been so hard to declare a winner? >> one of the changes that took place was making the odds of winning the top prize a little bit longer. they went from 1 in 175 million to 1 in 292 million. just a couple of weeks after that change, we had a $144 million powerball winner come forward. so we know this jackpot is very winnable. that's the beauty of the powerball game. it just takes one ticket to win, and you never know when you're going to have a winner or when that jackpot might roll again. >> all right, you're saying it's very winnable, and, of course, wednesday's the next drawing. i'm sure you want people to buy a plethora of tickets in advance of the next drawing. can you give us any strategy, any advice and how we should pick out those numbers?
8:07 am
>> well, most people obviously play quick pick. we have less than 10% of our players who choose their own numbers. i can tell you from experience and from statistics, it doesn't matter. your chances of winning are just the same wherever you live and however you pick your numbers. i do have one bit of advice for everyone. >> okay. >> if you don't play, if you don't play, you will not win. so, let's have some fun with this $1.3 billion powerball jackpot for next wednesday. >> all right. gary, we're so excited. and i'm sure your staff is preparing for uncharted territory right now. so, good luck to you guys and keep pumping some caffeine into your veins right now. >> thank you. good luck to everyone. >> thanks, gary. >> all right, we're going to be covering this powerball story straight through the wednesday drawing. but we need to turn to the other big breaking story this morning. the sensational new twist in the saga of el chapo, the infamous mexican drug lord who escaped
8:08 am
from a high security prison and was caught just days ago but look at this. we've learned that before the mexican authorities tracked el chapo down, the actor sean penn found him first. abc's matt gutman has the story from los mochis, mexico, this morning. that's where el chapo was rearrested. matt, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. apparently el chapo guzman so badly wanted a biopic of his life he invited sean penn to and kate del castillo to his hideout. the result was hollywood but no biopic for giudice and a pair of investigations by the mexican attorney general's office into those actors. this morning that stunning new video, that stunning interview with el chapo guzman surfaced a day after his capture in his home state of sinaloa. he conducted it with four actors
8:09 am
sean penn and kate del castillo who he hoped would make a biopic about his life. filmed on a remote ranch with squawking chickens, the man credited with thousands of guests and shipping a quarter of the narcotics into the u.s. saying all i do is defend myself. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> reporter: in an accompanying "rolling stone" article with that proof of interview picture, penn describes the harrowing trip to the jungle to meet el chapo. his charm, his son's glittery watches and battalion of polished bodyguards around him. on friday mexico authorities said el chapo's communications with purcharoducers and actors helped lead them to the drug lord. mexican authorities ranking guzman in front of the cameras now saying they may send him off again extraditing him to the u.s. to face drug and murder charges. he's broken out of two maximum security prisons in his career most recently last year. escaping through this tunnel built right into his prison cell.
8:10 am
this morning we learned how close he got to escaping again. squirting out of a gun battle at this house where five of his men were killed into the sewers. police told us he surfaced at this intersection and pulling up this manhole, we knew we found where he had been. the two allegedly came out of this manhole. you can peel it back and if you look inside you can see that m-4 with the rocket launcher. now, they left that inside, scampered out here, carjacked a vehicle and drove towards the highway. the mexican authorities timely catching el chapo and his lieutenant on this gravel road. they came here because it was the closest protected area to where el chapo was arrested about 200 yards that way. this suite is one of the furthest in the back and they brought him inside. this is where they got his identity. they sat him down on this bed and that's where they took that famous picture. hours after that picture was taken, he was whisked back to that mexico super max prison. now, el chapo could spend months in that prison as his ext
8:11 am
extradition process plays out but you could say that the mexican authorities should be grateful to sean penn, after all all those clandestine messages and seven-hour tequila-fueled interview did lead them to the shoot-out at this house and eventually el chapo's capture. dan. >> stranger than fiction. matt, thank you. for more to washington and pierre thomas. pierre, i got to ask you, given the vast resources of the u.s. government how did an actor find el chapo before the dea and the mexican army? >> reporter: well, dan, i got one for you, egoment apparently el chapo wanted to be interviewed. he wanted his life story told and that played a key role in sean penn being able to get this interview, so the primary person responsible here for this interview is el chapo. you can't make this stuff up. >> exactly right. so, let me ask you about sean penn. could he be in any legal trouble for not alerting authorities to the whereabouts of el chapo? >> dan, so far the doj is not commenting but doj might consider, the justice department might consider sean penn more of
8:12 am
a working journalist in this case and, therefore, would not see him as the major issue. i think the key question here is el chapo's actions may have led to his own capture in the sense that he gives an interview in which he acknowledges being a violent drug offender, a violent drug cartel leader, pretty stunning, and i can tell you the department of justice will seek to get that in. >> his interview could become useful evidence in the legal case against el chapo and speaking of that, the americans have long wanted to extradite him to face justice in our court system, and it now looks like the mexicans are finally going to agree. is that, in essence, a way of admitting they can't keep him behind bars? >> reporter: it's unclear but they may have decided keeping him in jail is difficult. he's been a source of embarrassment. they got him back, and it might be a little ibt easier to put him in the u.s. government's hands and let them deal with him.
8:13 am
>> all right. pierre thomas from washington this morning, and speaking of washington, do not forget to watch "this week with george stephanopoulos." george is going to be one-on-one with presidential candidates marco rubio and bernie sanders. that's later this morning right here on abc. >> well, on this sunday morning we're tracking many other stores and are that we turn it over to ron beginning with politics this morning. >> that's right. donald trump, he hasn't been into the news much. stepping up the birther attacks against his rival ted cruz although he stopped short of saying that cruz who was born in canada is ineligible to be president. >> you can't have a person running for office even though ted is very glib but goes out and he says, oh, well, i'm a natural born citizen. the point is, you're not. >> trump was stumping in iowa just three weeks with the caucus coming up there, three weeks from now, ted cruz maintaining there's no problem with his canadian birth because his mother was a u.s. citizen. and overseas now and a show of force by the u.s. aimed at north korea's leader kim jong-un. an american b-52 swooping over
8:14 am
an air base close to the border between north and south korea. the powerful bomber was flanked by u.s. and south korean fighter jets. enraged pyongyang. they said they tested a hydrogen bomb by visiting the country's military headquarters. kim called the widely disputed test an act of self-defense. and new video out this morning of the persian gulf in the persian gulf showing iranian ships firing missiles as the "uss harry truman" and other u.s. navy ships entered the gulf by the strait of hormuz. they released in that took place last month. iran denied it launches those missiles. and back here at home, the armed standoff in oregon got heated saturday when a new heavily armed group came to try to support the militia men who took over a national wildlife refuge. they got into a scuffle and

they did eventually depart when told by the occupying team by ammon bundy they were not needed. holed up there for a week and replaced a sign removing the word "national." and police in miami have released surveillance pictures of two women they say may be drugging men at local bars and restaurants before robbing them. two men reported meeting a woman at different restaurants on each occasion and reported feeling dizzy, and when they woke up, imagine this, the woman was gone and their rolex watches were gone. it happens. and finally, what's been called one of the biggest or at least ugliest playoff collapses in the nfl history and some huge plays in that game, watch this. and amazing touchdown grab by the pittsburgh steelers martavis bryant. a total somersault holding on to the ball, it landed behind his knees. the big story, paula and i talking about this -- >> i can't even watch. it's so painful.
8:16 am
>> the bengals, first they rallied to take the lead and steelers denied the bengals the victory with 15 seconds left. the bengals having two big personal foul penalties in the end there. >> that's what killed them. >> they're out. steelers move ahead to denver. >> they had the ball with like less than 1:30 left in pittsburgh territory. they fumbled and then they have two horrible, horrible calls against them. >> they've had a lot of bad luck for a long time. >> they shot themselves in the foot. they were in total control at the end. >> there are a lot of unhappy people in cincinnati. speaking of football, the countdown is on to the clash of two titans. the national football championship in college football. >> we are anticipating an epic battle, number one clemson taking on number two 'bama. rob is on the scene in glendale, arizona. for us this morning. good morning, rob, if you can hear us. hello. >> good morning, paula. good morning, dan. they have come from clemson, south carolina, from tuscaloosa, alabama. to this south side of phoenix,

8:32 am
the first heist, the fbi says they have finally tracked her down. this morning abigail kemp is in an atlanta jail accused of committing a string of armed jewelry store robberies across five states. kemp was arrested yesterday after the fbi investigation into at least six violent heists led them to this cobb county home and a suspect just 24 years old. >> i think if you were seduced by the rush, it doesn't matter what your age is. it becomes intoxicating. and the idea that you can maybe do a fourth. maybe do a fifth. in her case we think she's done maybe at least six. >> reporter: the arrest affidavit revealing new details about each crime explaining they were carried out much like the one caught on camera at this reed jeweler's in panama city beach, florida. there they allege kemp at gunpoint ordered two store employees to the store's restroom. made them lay face down on the floor and zip-tied their hands noting that this man then closed the front door and stood as a lookout while kemp took about
